Bismarck’s famous bon mot about the ”Ungeheuer” (monster) that tasted monstrously good is a stock theme in the history of German wine. It describes a high-class wine, whose special spiciness makes it something quite unique. Its powerful body, a gift from the clay and limestone in the soil, is flattered by aromas like rosewater and carnations.
It is almost too complex not to smother a dish. This is a wine with so much density, strength, fruit and mineral character, that it is finished and complete in itself. A wine for among friends, over a good chat or one to enjoy in those quiet moments. An insider’s tip for accompanying dishes is foods flavoured with Arabic or Indian seasoning, like cumin, cardamom etc.
”Grosses Gewachs“ – the name sounds respectful, admiring, and even a little ceremonial. And in fact its exceptional character commands deference and attention. For ”Grosses Gewachs” wines are commitments turned into wine. Commitments to the region, the selection and to tradition. Simultaneously they are a promise to the wine lover, that an excellent draught with its own clear profile awaits him.
